Magnetic Make Up Board

I hate spending a lot of time getting ready before I have to go somewhere, and have always been annoyed by how unorganized my make up is. I used to spend so much time rummaging through a bag trying to find the right color and the right brush, and I don't even have that much make up! So since I moved to a new house, I decided to try to be more organized and try to do a couple of those organizational things I've been seeing on Pinterest that make me happy, and decided to start by making a magnetic make up board.
I found a magnetic board at Craft Warehouse and chose the size that was closest to the size of scrapbook paper, so I didn't have to do any cutting. I used matte mod podge on the metal and then went over the front with mod podge. Glue magnets to the back of my make up, and voila! It was so easy, it really cheers up our bathroom, and makes me feel less stressed when I'm getting ready. I think at some point I want to add a frame to finish up the look, but for now I'm happy with the result. The best part is, it cost me less than 12 bucks to make.

To organize my brushes, I had a little flower pot that came with an orchid that I killed shortly after receiving it as a gift from a former student. I filled it up with rice and stuck them in, brush side up. Now they are super easy to see and get to. My make up has never been as organized, and it takes up almost no counter space.

P.S. If you make your way to Bath & Body Works or my bathroom, try the Candy Cane Bliss hand soap. I'm obsessed.

Ooh, I might have to steal this idea. My makeup space is a total mess!
